On the cult of Chris Dorner

I read his manifesto.  There is nothing heroic, trenchant, bracing, or even interesting (substance-wise) in any of his predictable rantings.  Instead, he is a poster-child for how leftist propaganda has yet again created a self-righteous, morally confused, and intellectually bankrupt self-esteem brat who has been so poisoned by lies and so unwilling to accept (and then address and correct)  his own shortcomings, that he is able to cast about for villains in order to cocoon his own ego, to create of himself a self-righteous crusader,  and thus justify his violence as somehow necessary to bring about a Greater Good.

If Obama had two sons, one would look like Trayvon Martin and the other other would look like Chris Dorner.  Because make no mistake:  Dorner is a product of the long-march through the institutions, an emergent persona molded from cynical race and class baiting and then filled up with misinformation on guns and gun crime and on the nature of liberty and those who defend it — and, once formed and compelled by some internal chime into aggressive action, is  then cheered on, unofficially, as a sort of modern-day leftist folk hero, particularly in the Black community, whose leaders have thrown in with the government to create an angry and perpetually enslaved underclass reliant on their leadership and reliant on the government.

There.  That’s the truth about Chris Dorner and his “True Believer” supporters.  His other supporters see him as useful idiot.  A tool. A pawn to be manipulated through media presentation.  An occasional to launch “national discussions” or to reinforce progressive policy.

Having dealt with the types of people who hold prosecutorial discretion in LA, I’m no big fan of LA law enforcement on the whole. But as civil rights attorney Connie Rice notes, Dorner’s depiction of the LA police dept is dated, confused, perhaps dishonest,  and relies on our collective willingness to assimilate old narratives (often reinforced by Hollywood productions) in order to justify a kind of outlaw vigilantism.

He is a pathetic man being fluffed by those who are drawn to radical chic.

That’s it.  There’s nothing more to any of this than just that.

  1. Chris Dorner is a special snowflake, full of wonder, just like everybody else. All of his many social problems are someone else’s fault. Just ask him.

    They’re making this asshole the new Mumia Abu Jamal. Here’s to him bleeding out, the sooner the better.

  2.

    That and a narcissistic self-regard that compels him to view real-life™ setbacks and shortcomings as a conspiracy against his genius.

  3. It’s not his fault, he’s fighting raaaacism!

  4. Connie Rice has her own parking spot in the LAPD parking garage

  5. Hillary and Joe might as well drop out of the running for 2016. Chris Dorner has the inside track.

  6. They’re making this asshole the new Mumia Abu Jamal. Here’s to him bleeding out, the sooner the better.

    On the contrary – I’m hoping he’s taken alive and brought to a public trial.

    I’d really like to see his viewpoints receive an airing to a wider audience rather than just swept under the rug.

  7. According to happyfeets, though, LAPD has it coming, as does anyone they know and/or love.

    Which tells you really all you need to know about happyfeets.

  8. yes Mr. Slart the widespread disdain in which the LAPD is held explains most of the Dorner action figure syndrome phenomenon I think

    at least among the everyday normal people who Dorner is resonating with

    those ones are different than the ones you see on the cable tv splatching Dorner onto a narrative

    but to be clear, what the LAPD has coming is a lack of sympathy from the public in this situation, and hence we have Dorner action figure syndrome

    but you’re not supposed to kill people just cause of you don’t like them it’s in the bible

    but I’d note also – and this is getting overlooked – that a lot of this phenomenon is being fueled not so much by long-simmering enmity but by the LAPD’s frightening incompetence in the pursuit of Mr. Dorner

  9. “I’m hoping he’s taken alive and brought to a public trial”.

    The chances of this turd being brought to trail are slim to none. If the two pickup truck shooting incidents are any example, the police are not interested in arresting Mr. Dorner in the least. Self inflicted gun shot is his probable future.

  10. Dorner’s depiction of the LA police dept is dated,

    Isn’t he cheesed off because he was fired from LAPD and his petition to be re-instituted wasn’t granted?

    He’s killing cops and their kids because an evil racist organization won’t let him back in?

    But that’s logic, and logic is beside the point. Better play out his personal psychodrama on the national stage, playing a role right out of central casting: the military-trained dude gone rogue, taunting the cops and outsmarting him because he knows how they roll.

    Are we sure this isn’t an episode of Criminal Minds that got out of hand?

  11. it’s unclear to me what role the manifesto has in all this – other than the obvious factor of how when you hear someone has a manifesto it’s different than all those ones what don’t have manifestos

    i haven’t read it yet but I keep asking people who’ve read it to tell me what their takeaways were

  12. I declare this Tin-foil Tuesday, and offer a perspective on how the Dorner fans, anti-LAPD crusaders, and propaganda, all are colluding to advance the objectives of the political elite (AKA: the “Illuminati”)

    On a first reading, I know this guy comes off as a crank…going on and on about symbolism, mind control, and secret societies. I can’t remember how I first came across this blog, I think it was back in the frenzy of 9/11 trutherism; the guy is a truther. Now I’m not a truther, but I found some of what he said intriguing and so kept reading. His analysis of music and movies I find way more interesting than TMZ. Anyway, he has impressive documentation going back years on how the same symbols, imagery, and themes are prevalent in pop culture, and work for the agenda of a global elite, whom serve a decidedly anti-Christ religion.

    Here is the kind of thing, taken from the above link, that keeps me going back:

    “For the elite of his day, and for the monetary elite today, the Hegelian dialectic provides tools for the manipulation of society.

    To move the public from point A to point B, one need only find a spokesperson for a certain argument and position him or her as an authority. That person represents Goalpost One. Another spokesperson is positioned on the other side of the argument, to represent Goalpost Two.

    Argument A and B can then be used to manipulate a given social discussion. If one wishes, for instance, to promote Idea C, one merely needs to promote the arguments of Goalpost One (that tend to promote Idea C) more effectively than the arguments of Goalpost Two. This forces a slippage of Goalpost Two’s position. Thus both Goalpost One and Goalpost Two advance downfield toward Idea C. Eventually, Goalpost Two occupies Goalpost One’s original position. The “anti-C” argument now occupies the pro-C position. In this manner whole social conversations are shifted from, say, a debate over market freedom vs. socialism to a debate about the degree of socialism that is desirable.

    The Hegelian dialectic is a powerful technique for influencing the conversations of cultures and nations, especially if one already controls (owns) much of the important media in which the arguments take place. One can then, as the monetary elite characteristically do, emphasize one argument at the expense of the other, effectively shifting the positions of Goalposts One and Two.”

  13. So what you’re saying is that Obama’s no Fred MacMurray.

    Yet.

  14. i haven’t read it yet

    Then you really aren’t qualified to speak as to his motives or the morality of his actions, are you?

  15. That’s assuming that he is being honest in what he wrote and not simply writing it as a means of manipulating others.

  16. I heard some caller on the radio claiming this gavone, Dorner, is going to be wiley as all get out since he has military and po-lice training. To which I say “Bullshit.”

    The guy was a patrolman for four months before he deployed to Bahrain where he was a scope dope. He’s hardly either tactical unit trained by the cops or a SEAL. He was a metermaid and a paper pusher. The only one he’s outsmarted is himself by running into the snow-choked mountains in February.

  17. No doubt LAPD has some serious problems and they can and should be addressed. But there is no problem with the LAPD that can justify killing members of the LAPD or citizens that have nothing to do with the LAPD.

    Why is this even a topic for discussion?

  18. Then you really aren’t qualified to speak as to his motives or the morality of his actions, are you?

    he’s a murderous fiend Mr. Hinckley I don’t really care about his motives this post is about the cult he’s inspired

    and in that respect I’m more interested in knowing other people’s understanding of what they’ve read really

    I’ll get around to reading it probably this weekend

  19. The only one he’s outsmarted is himself by running into the snow-choked mountains in February.

    Wrong; he’s going to live off bighorns what he chases down himself and skins with his fingernails.

    It seems that it was just a teensy ways back that happyfeets thought Dorner’s murder of the uninvolved was really LAPD’s own fault. As if that somehow excused or justified it, or contradicted in some way Dorner’s murderousness.

    Now he’s laying Dorner’s legend-status at the feet of the LAPD as well. As if the LAPD made leftists adulate Dorner.

  20. It’s hard to wade through the adolescent ignorant narcissism in that ‘manifesto’. His fans obviously appreciate a hero on their own level.

  21. you have very bad reading comprehension Mr. Slart but I still love you

  22. Limbaugh said something today about a poll that shows fame (or in oldspeak, honor) to be a priority to the great unwashed masses. Now I didn’t listen to Limbaugh’s presentation carefully at all, so have no idea where he took the bare mention of this result. However, it chimes, if oddly, with Dorner’s claim that he’s killing to resurrect his “good name”. To be sure, Dorner doesn’t have to have thought through the contradiction he tosses in his readers face right from the jump, but it is interesting to note the presence of the professed motivation.

  23. I think, having just skimmed the manifesto a few days ago, maybe the pycho watched all three Bourne movies, and Matt Damon is his hero.

    That Queen Latifah reference is problematic to my theory though.

  24. “yes Mr. Slart the widespread disdain in which the LAPD is held explains most of the Dorner action figure syndrome phenomenon I think”

    Speak for yourself.

    “you have very bad reading comprehension Mr. Slart but I still love you”

    No. he doesn’t. Doubtful.

    ” but it is interesting to note the presence of the professed motivation.”

    Not really. It is a rhetorical ploy to get someone, such as youself (or any moral person, for that matter), to give pause to judging his behavior for it’s own sake and merit. Make no mistake, it is dishonest and meant to confuse all issues and maniputate opinion through the media.

  25. “Wrong; he’s going to live off bighorns what he chases down himself and skins with his fingernails.”

    If he’d taken a few of his fellow travelers with him as a food source, they could rename the area “Dorner Pass”.

  26. Heh. One of the commentors at Taki Magazine referred to Dorner as “The Rambo Sambo”.

    And, if Johnny Cochran were still alive, he’d say, “Someone called him a nigger and made him pull the trigger!”

  27. SarahW thinks he’s dead like those people what get lost in the wilderness when it’s super cold and die and then snow gets dumped on them and they don’t get found til spring

    It’s supposed to be a not particularly bad way to go

    but it’s gross cause that snowcap is our drinking water

  28. If he is dead, he really is a pussy. I can build a snowfort and I’m a little girl.

  29. but it’s gross cause that snowcap is our drinking water

    That’s what vultures are for. ‘Specially the turkey ones with the noses for rot.

  30. Seems more likely he’s in a bar in Compton getting slapped on the back, given free drinks, and many offers to use the guest room.

  31. Faux says he has exchanged gunfire with the cops.

    He’s either “cornered” or “in a fire-fight” or both.

    I predict if this is true that the cops will parade his body corpse (figuratively) at a news conference tonight.

    People will come out of the woodwork to speak of their “narrow escapes” from The Dorner.

    It’s as predictable as a Tarantino movie.

  32. Apparently, he’s been holding a couple hostage in their home for days. Because that will show the LAPD.

  33. come out with your hands up

  34. - Well, hes not dead just yet……

    ***Live Update : Two game wardens scouting the mountains west of LA spotted a stolen auto and atempted to pull it over, and a gunfight erupted resulting in both cops being wounded. A man matching Dorners discription escaped on foot into the woods. Police are swarming the area doing car by car searches with guns drawn.

  35. Dorner-Corkins 2016!

  36. You know what else is a dated lefty notion? That everything is a zero sum game and that if Dorner is bad the LAPD must be good.

    I can see with my own eyes what the LAPD is: a bunch of fucking reckless clowns with no clue what they are doing.

    But do go on. Outlaw and all that.

  37. Agreed. They’ve made it quite clear from their actions during this manhunt that the LAPD has the same attitude as the Police Chief from future LA in Bladerunner – “You know the score, pal. You’re not cop, you’re little people!”

    And when one (or three) of their own get killed, any professed concern for the safety of the ‘little people’ is shown to be a charade.

    You don’t open up with 30+ shots at a random pickup truck in a residential neighborhood (didn’t we just have much hand-wringing about some Utah guy firing two shots?), even if the pickup truck was being driven by the Giant Negro of Death himself. But to open up like lunatics without even verifying that the suspect was in the vehicle, or that the driver of the vehicle was in any way a threat… well, you see where random Asian women, morning-surfing dudes, and anyone else who has the bad luck to be on the roads when there’s some serious assassinatin’ to be done happen to rank.

    Little people don’t count.

  38. so what we had here was a gun-totin’ outlaw really resonating with people – and the left were not immune to his gun-totin’ outlaw … charm? mystique? defiance?

    all while our propaganda slut media is working double time to herd the masses into anti-gun groupthink

    there’s some small hope for America yet I think

  39. You’re emigrating?

    Sweet.

    Bon voyage.

  40. I can see with my own eyes what the LAPD is: a bunch of fucking reckless clowns with no clue what they are doing

    Also, musicians are all pack of drug addicted smelly hippies. I’ve seen them with my own eyes!

  41. Happy Ash Wednesday, ‘feets! What’s cooking?

  42. For real, Lee. I’ve seen with my own eyes that engineers are nebbishes with no social skills who dress like Steve Urkel.

  43. FWIW, back in 1994 the Alaska State Troopers were closing in on one Manfried West, suspected of murdering Alaskan Indpendence Party founder Joe Vogler.

    He holed up in a house in the Farmers Loop area of Fairbanks, which he burned down on himself. And survived to stand trial; alas, Alaska has no death penalty. As far as I know West is alive and well in the state’s prison system.

    So while the odds are better than pretty good that the charred human remains found in the cabin in California are those of Chris Dorner, I’ll wait for confirmation because Fred West taught me not to count my BBQ before it’s served.

  44. i have a taco bell quesadilla plus a couple crunchy tacos i got on the way in my taco bell lady is named margarita and she always works the window when they first open and she always smiles and that makes the taco bells taste better

  45. Does Chris Dorner look like he could have been Obama’s son?

  46. Y’all can tell me to stop with the folksy life lessons I learned in Alaska any time now.

  47. Car in wins, I declare.
